I just had a baby and its been a while since I had to make a decision about vaccinating. To be honest, when I had my oldest vaccinated I thought it was just something you "had to do" and that there were only a handful of "out there" people that didn't. Now I see there is so much information available about the dangers of vaccinating and that it was far more common not to vaccinate than I thought.
Anyway, my daughter got her first vaccinations today and I had second thoughts about doing it then...all I could think about were the chemicals...and tonight my baby is either bawling hysterically or knocked out...no in between. So I want to know more about not vaccinating.
Please share anything you think is helpful, but I would really like to know what made you decide not to and what do you do about getting your kids into school? Do they require vaccines still?
If you like the idea of vaccines, and don't want to forgo all of them, then you can always do a delayed schedule and pick and choose which vaccines to get.
The Vaccine Book, by dr. Sears is a great book.
A shot in the dark, by H. Coulter is also a good book.
Otherwise I got a lot of my info from the CDC, and just research the diseases, the vaccine ingrediants, etc.
We don't do any vaccines at all.. but many of the ones that they have avaliable are not even necessary or have been studied enough (hep a for instance)
